Lives: Johannesburg 

I am a passionate and driven 20-year-old. I am a performer, choreographer, storyteller and theatre maker. I am also a media and journalism student who is inspired by political stories and current affairs. I am an advocate for social justice and I aspire to advocate for women and children in Africa. In my spare time (pretty much every day), I absolutely love to spend time in my personal home gym.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?

Fitness has allowed me to bring out the leader in me. Often, when people see my workout routines on social media and they see the results they become motivated to do the same for themselves and that inspires me to keep pushing to make a positive impact on their lives. Incorporating fitness into my life has definitely pushed me to live a consistent and fulfilling life.  As a performer, it is super important for me to stay fit and healthy to fully push my body on the stage. 

What are your personal fitness goals?

To perfect my form, gain muscle strength, improve my flexibility, and follow a fixed nutritional plan.
